## delta G at equilibrium

$\Delta G^{\circ}= \Delta H^{\circ} - T \Delta S^{\circ}$

$\Delta G^{\circ}= -RT\ln K$

$\Delta G^{\circ}= \sum \Delta G_{f}^{\circ}(products) - \sum \Delta G_{f}^{\circ}(reactants)$

### delta G at equilibrium

Why is delta G always 0 at equilibrium? I think I vaguely understand this but I would appreciate if someone explained it.

Gibbs free energy measures how much potential a reaction has left. Hence if the free energy is zero, then the reaction is at equilibrium, and no more work can be done.
